Transfer Talk Topic in Transfer Talk Posted October 30, 2020 · Report reply The loan army has been a monumental success for Chelsea financially. Either getting academy products a platform to become saleable or, rarer, first team candidates. Secondly we bring in foreign hopefuls for peanuts, farm out for fees and sell at a profit. Even loaning out deadwood can cover any amortisation losses with loan fees in and the hope of increasing market value while taking wages off the books. Chels have just been best at exploiting the player as commodity model and the papers find it somehow distateful while ignoring actual news and pusuing their own bs outrage du jour in order to maintain the status quo. The double standard is painful to see compared to the coverage of other clubs and their fans, you know who I mean! Anyway, loan system is being totally revamped isn't it?
